PAHOA, Hawaii, May 9 (Reuters) – Emergency crews ordered Hawaii residents to leave their homes after two new fissures opened up near the Kilauea volcano, almost a week after it started a series of huge explosions. People in the Lanipuna Gardens neighborhood in the southeast corner of Big Island were told there was an “immediate danger”.
“The residents … are going through a very difficult time. We ask for your understanding. We ask for your help,” the Hawaii Civil Defense Agency said in an alert.
